Overview

A warm and wise self-portrait of the woman who originated the therapy that bears her name. Here, Ida Rolf tells about her life, about the wonder of the human body, about life in general, and about Rolfing in particular, explaining her technique of manipulating muscle tissue to allow the body to come into its correct alignment.
After Rolfing, your body has been encouraged to do what it wants to do--you move with ease, your lungs take in more air, and you are taller (and therefore, slimmer).

Asside from Dr. Ida P. Rolf's texbook, this is a unique opportunity to learn about Structural Integration, also known as Rolfing. Dr. Rolf died in 1979. Her major textbook opens many new questions. In this book, Dr. Rolf talks informally about the work.
